Law School Admissions / Changing careers
« on: December 30, 2008, 06:03:06 AM »
Is there a disadvantage for someone going to law school to change careers and coming out of law school looking for a job that does not relate to your previous work experience? Is it fair to say that once in law school, it is more about your acedemic and extracurricular performance than it is about your previous work experience when it comes to gaining employment in an area that does not relate to the previous work experience? I am changing careers and albeit I am interested in learning about job prospects that relate to my previous experience, I do not want to be limited in my search and do not want employers looking the other way..any thoughts?

My first inclination is that even with any solid work experience in any field, I would have an advantage over someone coming directly out of UG with no work experience.

Thanks. I am actually married and own a condo in Atlanta. My wife's work is in Atlanta, so Atlanta would be my home base. I guess I could rent a room, which I did not know would be available. I live in Midtown Atlanta and close to the highway, so I guess I just have to weigh my options when I get accepted. Thanks for the insight though.

I have a question. I live in Atlanta and have applied to Mercer. Are there many people from Atlanta that commute to Macon for school?

No kidding...I knew to take that with a grain of salt.

Law School Admissions / The Shortest Waitlist?
« on: December 16, 2008, 01:16:29 PM »
So, what is the shortest time frame you have seen someone go from ''Waitlisted'' to Accepted? I got waitlisted so I wanted to be able to NOT check the status checker everyday..

The admission person said it could be anytime but usually by mid-march to april. Then she said "I'll keep your file in front of the committee as often as I can''. What is that supposed to mean??!!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Emory class of 2012!

I am waiting to hear from Emory. I just sent them an e-mail asking when they thought I was going to hear. She said I would be notified in 4-6 weeks. I wonder why some were notified early?

Anyway, I am from Atlanta so I can entertain housing, nightlife and whatever other questions you may have.
